I don't know about #1 but Chris Smith from south point should be top 25 on the list Kid was built like a monster, was really quick and had an arm like a cannon!

Greg Cook IS a Chilly alum. Played at the University of Cincinnati, and was NFL rookie of the year (1969?). He is one of the numbers "retired" inside Nippert Stadium. It's been a few years ago, but I can remember reading a story where Bill Walsh said he was the best "talent" he EVER saw at the QB position before his injury... and yes, Walsh said that included Montana and Steve Young which he also coached. Impressive...

Didn't he get a full ride to Marshall and then quit football, or am I thinking of someone else?

Wheelersburgs got another one playing right now that is just as good at hiding the ball on the fake and going around the end with it and he's only a sophmore. He scored that game winning TD against Minford last Saturday on an incredible fake and went almost untouched for 65 yards. I believe he's had a couple TD's called back this year because of the plays being blown dead when the officials didn't realize he still had the ball and that used to happen to Eaton all the time. I remember Jonathon got to the point that once he was in the open he would hold the ball up so the officials could see it and they still blew it dead a few times. Brandon Schankweiler is the boys name and by the time he is a senior I believe he will be amongst the best to ever play in this area.

Im not 100% sure but that is what I had heard I don't know why though?....kid was beastly the 2 thing's he did better than any quarterback i've ever seen is he would run you over and the other was the ease in which he threw a 65 yarder, almost like he was throwing 10 yards

Sloan is good but he is not the best Qb in the state. He isn't even the best in this area, but he is a very good player with the tools to be great.

The only Qb's I believe could be considered in this category that are still playing are

Roback-Waverly
Angle-Logan
Knights- Chillicothe

Some of the best Qb's that I can think of are

Conrad-Logan
Johnson- Gallia Acad.
Gregory- Athens
Humphreys- Jackson

Depending on what kind of Qb you want all these were VERY good quarterbacks. All were very good at other sports other than football also.

Eaton is by far one of the greatest QBs I have seen...I believe he is the best overall athlete that has come out of Scioto County also...and perhaps southern Ohio

Jared Humphreys at Jackson was also a great athlete and QB.

Loved watching Jared Humphreys at QB for the Ironmen. Every time he touched the ball, there was a chance that he was going to take it to the house. One of the best all-around athletes that I've ever seen at the high school level. Definitely one of SE Ohio's best dual threat QBs.

Another one from Jackson is Joey Boggs. Until Humphreys, he was the best QB I had seen at Jackson. Even though he didn't get a chance too often, Joey could really throw the football. He was a great leader as well...always stepped up and made a play when it was needed. As was mentioned about Jonathan Eaton above, he could hide the football with the best of them.

Interesting note about Jonathon Eaton. His family lived in the house that I grew up in years before my family moved in. Wish the Eaton family would have stayed in Jackson!

Thats is interesting...my mother was the Eaton's babysitter while she was in high school...so she has got some interesting tales of Jonathon and his bros :lol: The house they moved into was right down the street from hers.

I`m sure I`ve seen Him ! I now live in Minford, and have for 20 years. He is good, but not like Eaton.

Problem with Chris Smith was he tried to throw a 5 or 10 yard pass like he did a 65 yard pass!A back would come out of the backfield and he would tattoo them with a 95mph fastball,NO TOUCH!But you are right about the deep ball,I have never seen anyone throw it as well as him except maybe his older brother!

I watched Nate Davis (Bellaire) play against Ironton in Athens a few years ago. Playoff game, 3OT thriller.. I know you 'Tiger Faithful' were there.
